YouTube & Minecraft community pays tribute to Technoblade: “An absolute legend”
Technoblade created an emotional goodbye video following on from the news that he had passed away.
Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has died following a battle with cancer at age 23. His passing has prompted an outpouring of support from the Minecraft community and beyond, paying tribute to his memory and achievements.
On June 30, Technoblade’s father provided a final update on his YouTube channel, confirming his son’s passing. Technoblade had been open about his battle with cancer, often turning it into humorous content on his channel, demonstrating his strong mentality throughout.
“You’ve done so much for so many people, millions of people,” his father said.
Following the news, tributes flooded in from all corners of the internet, particularly within the Minecraft community, which is as large as it is close-knit.
Minecraft community pays tribute to Technoblade
ConnorEatsPants, a frequent collaborator of Technoblade, said “don’t wait till your friends of peers, no matter how close, are gone to tell them what you love/appreciate about them. It’s never too cringey or inappropriate.”
He also told a story of how Technoblade sent a card to his younger brother, thanking him for being a fan, after Connor told him he was his brother’s favorite YouTuber.
If there’s anything I want to take from this, don’t wait till your friends or peers, no matter how close, are gone to tell them what you love/appreciate about them. It’s never too cringey or inappropriate, show those around you what they mean to you, and how they affected you.

Techno was and is such a positive light, he truly genuinely believed in me n helped me so much, much more than what may have been seen publicly. Im heartbroken but really so thankful he has been able to impact so many lives with his genuine wit, charm, and positivity.

TommyInnit called Techno a “f**king legend,” and revealed a message he had sent him on Minecraft for the SMP (the server many content creators play on).
“Tell the rest of the SMP that having abolished all governments of men, I have ascended to heaven to take on the kingdom of God. – Technoblade.”
Technoblade is a fucking legend. From being a massive fan, to one of his actual friends, I can’t describe how thankful I am to have been in his life.I just know he’s strategizing in heaven on how to beat God. This isn’t a joke. look at the screenshot.

Twitch streamer and YouTuber Mizkif said that Technoblade’s attitude about content creation was something he “aspired” to.
“Even with cancer, he just tried to make others smile and laugh,” he said.
Technoblade was a phenomenal content creator.
His attitude throughout his content is what I aspire to be. Not to take things seriously, joking around, and trying to make others smile.
Even with cancer, he just tried to make others smile and laugh.
RIP to a genuinely funny man
